Ok, I need some advice. Anyone got tips for fixing my laptop keyboard?

    This isn't a serious problem, but it's serious enough to make me turn to you guys.

    I'm sure I'm not the only person on this board to face this problem. See, I type. A lot. So much so, that the lettering on my laptop's keyboard has chipped off for the letters "A, S, E, D, C and L". Now, I can still write without seeing them, as my hands have kind of memorized the position to the point I don't have to look at the keyboard but it's truly an eyesore.

    I tried using a whiteout pen to fill the letters in and that worked OK at first but after a while I was no better off than when I started.

    My question is....has this ever happened to you and if so, what should I do to fix it?

    Thanks in advance.

    A keyboard is like $10 bucks.

    Before you fix your keyboard, you might delete your cache so your SO/wife/mom doesn't find your stash of p0rn.

    If you really don't want to spend a few bucks on a keyboard, try writing the letters with nail polish.

    It's not that I don't want to spend the money on a keyboard, I just don't want to carry around a keyboard and try to awkwardly balance it on my lap.

    And BBAM, I'm not too worried about people finding my porn. I all but have it as a screen saver.

    Watch where you're aiming next time.
